Perfect ski days - Friday and Saturday

Mother Nature continues to bless Ragged Mountain with new snow, and the weather forecast for today and Saturday is looking just about perfect. 

Today, Friday, February 22 should have sunny skies and temps getting into the low 30s. With 3" of fresh snow on Wednesday night, conditions are outstanding all across the mountain. For Saturday, February 23, another beautiful day is queued up with partly sunny skies and temps rising into the low 30s again. It just doesn't get any better than this!  You can count on our groomers laying down the corduroy for you to rip up.

In the wee hours of Sunday morning, we looking for another 3" to 5" of snow before possibly turning to a winter mix before noon. Lifts open at 8:30am so there is time to enjoy the new freshies before a possible changeover. This new snow is setting up next week for more great skiing and riding at Ragged.

For the weekend, we'll be skiing and riding on 52 trails and glades served by 5 lifts including the Ragged 6-passenger Express and the Spear Mountain Quad going to our twin summits. We have skiing and riding for all ability levels with dedicated novice terrain at the Barnyard Triple and two moving Carpets.

If you need ski or snowboard rental equipment, stop by the Ragged Rental Shop and see Carl, Eddie and the crew for the latest in Rossignol equipment. They are also experts in ski tuning and ski base repairs. If you're spending most of your time in the woods (sweeeet!) and you need a little base repair work, they can make your ski bottoms as good as new.

Don't miss the best skiing of the season --- come on up to beautiful Ragged Mountain and enjoy our winter winterland!
